GEORGIA– A Georgia homeowner shot and killed three masked teens as they approached his residence with their faces covered, authorities said. The three victims, one 15-year-old and two 16-year-olds, were all from the area but did not live in the specific neighborhood they were in, the Rockdale County Sheriff’s Office said. The teens approached three residents at the front yard of a home early Monday morning and attempted to rob them, authorities say. One of the would-be robbers took out a gun and fired shots at them, before one of the residents returned fire.

Comments:

I call that good shooting.

Keeping my powder dry on this one until more details come oit. Saw this on another site....they were out in the yard 'talking' at 4 AM. With handgun and semi-auto rifle in hand. Then 3 masked utes just show up to rob them. Sorry...but my bee ess alarm just went off. Sounds a whole lot like a drug deal gone wrong, or some punks looking to score a big payday at a drug house. Might be hard to find a hero here.

Now that's what I call gun control! Taking out three armed robbers, who were already shooting, without sustaining any injury to the innocent people! Now we don't have to endure and pay for three trials, nor the future expense of maintaining the criminals in prison! Criminals would be advised to avoid Georgia and, instead, find a city where guns are banned!

Homeowner taps his targets, takes out the trash and only the bad guys are dispatched to the chthonian regions. There's obviously a lot more to this one but so far, so good. This seems more like Castle Doctrine than Stand your Ground but I'm no expert. My hunch is the homeowner is a black dude. Had he been a white guy that would've been in the headline. There's more to this but so far, so good. I'm curious if the homeowner and the three (dead) stooges had been around the track before.

What a dirty shame. The homeowner did what he had to do. Anyone who thinks that after multiple thugs introduced deadly force into the equation the victim could have simply gone into TV fantasy land mode and just wing them, is a fool. I hope that the homeowner is doing well, regardless of how justified his actions were, he still has to live with knowing he killed them.

The Rise of Jordan Peterson 10 replies
Posted by zephyrgirl 10/14/2019 10:23:25 AM Post Reply
Given today’s downward cultural spiral, it’s disturbing but not surprising that the makers of a thoughtful new documentary about Jordan Peterson are having a hard time finding somewhere to show their film. Many mainstream and independent cinemas have refused to screen it because they’re “fearful of controversy” or “morally concerned.” One theater in Toronto cancelled a week-long showing after some of the staff “took issue with it.” A theater in Brooklyn cancelled a second screening, despite the fact that the first sold out and received good reviews, “because some staff were offended . . . and felt uncomfortable.”

Anchor Shepard Smith exited Fox News after being sick of clashing with his primetime colleagues, sources claim. Smith, who has been the network's most vocal critic of President Trump, requested a way out of his $15million a year contract after growing tired of being attacked by other hosts, a Fox insider tells the Daily Beast. Most recently, Smith was openly mocked by Tucker Carlson on his show for calling an attack on one their colleagues 'repugnant.'

As I have said before, I think the claim that President Trump’s phone conversation with President Zelensky of Ukraine somehow constitutes an impeachable offense is ridiculous. But impeachment is a political act, not a legal one, and the Democrats’ motives are entirely political. They think that impeaching President Trump will cast a pall of discredit over him and weaken his chances for re-election in 2020. I think that calculation is probably right. We will see a great deal of impeachment-related poll data in the months to come, but this early survey, reported in the New York Post, suggests that the Democrats are on the right track:  Headline corrected*

A New York Times expose details a story by classmate Max Stier who says he saw Kavanaugh at a party with his pants down. Friends allegedly pushed his penis in to a female student's hand. Stier told senators and the FBI about this, but the bureau did not investigate, according to the NYT. Stier runs a non-profit in Washington and has declined to discuss the story publicly.

A Parisian shrug at the dalliances of the rich and powerful marks one as sophisticated. An affair carried out with the insouciance of Ilhan Omar and her lover Tim Mynett demonstrates the shameless embrace of not only the protagonists of their minuet à deux but also the nonchalance forced upon the secondary actors, the spouses, and, even more forgettable, the children. Everyone must play along. Adults have needs, many unmet, and what’s wrong with finding amore where one can? Whose business is it?

Today he is living at the home of his parents in Phoenix under conditions he describes as a form of psychological house arrest. There are no visitors, and his few remaining friends rarely call. He feels unable to make new ones, because he fears the reaction of anyone who Googles him. He's 32, unemployed, and perhaps unemployable—"I'm radioactive," as he puts it. And he's still trying to find the right combination of psychotropic medication to quell the recurrent thought that ending his life may be the best way out.

Upon hearing the news that President Trump bowed to pressure from congressional Republicans and reversed his decision to hold next year’s G-7 summit at the Trump National Doral Miami, my immediate response was, “Ah, what might have been.” No, I’m not wistful about the missed opportunity for taxpayers to throw a lifeline to Trump’s struggling resort. Rather, I’m a bit misty-eyed about what the last three years might have looked like if Republicans had shown this kind of spine all along.

By now everyone knows that Mitt Romney used a Twitter account named "Pierre Delecto" to attack President Trump, Newt Gingrich, and others. Further, Pierre defended and praised Mitt. Too bad Pierre was not around to defend Mitt when the Democrats, led by Harry Reid, attacked Mitt for supposedly not paying income taxes, shipping jobs overseas, causing cancer to his employees, being mean to his dog, and so forth. (snip) The good news for non-quisling Republicans is that this should end the career of Pierre/Mitt to be the next John McCain as the go-to-guy whenever the Democrats and the media need a "Republican" to attack President Trump and conservatives.

They cited scheduling difficulties and new evidence of potential wrong doing by the White House as main reasons for the delay. Democrats now say that they hope to be ready for a vote by Christmas, but waiting that long to resolve the matter in the House and send it over to the Senate is rife with problems, which was why Democrats wanted it to be wrapped up by Thanksgiving in the first place.

The hole fluctuates in size annually and is usually largest during the coldest months in the southern hemisphere, from late September to early October. The latest observations from space have shown the hole now covers less than 3.9million square miles–a record low and almost half as small as it was during its peak at 6.3million on September 8 only six weeks ago.
